A guest release from that rarity on m211, someone from a continent outside Europe. This time Darkhalo steps in to show us what an interesting reading the Americans are taking on the whole d+b thing, encompassing Californian breakbeat, acid b-lines, and even some Transeau shaken up in there - just the right side of catchy, we fear, and fully compatible with the breaks and beats that m211 insists on releasing in such a hipflask lackadaisical fashion..

Wowee, a first release for Distance on the breakbeat-ish Mono211, and this time it's a real interesting blend between his conventional unconventionality and a new sub-bass and sharp breaks style. Original, I warrant, and pretty clever with it. And the name is.. well, it makes sense to you, doesn't it?

More rewording and reordering as Substance takes elements from two previous releases (Tek's mp3 "Benedict" and Prob+Ebb's "Stylez") and merges and melds to come up with this mellifluous hybrid. It's fun to play with sounds, isn't it? Watch out for a simultaneous/near-simultaneous Malik remix of "Stylez" on Theralite (http://pigforce.warande.net/theralite), incidentally.. mmm, synchronicity can be so constructive, hm?

If you listen closely, it just makes so much _sense_. castlemortonravekid Subi, fresh from sorting us the new version of da m211 screensaver, blasts us another of his telegrams from A500 space, and it's so.. him. Where else could you get that authentic 1991 flava and the mechtinnytech snarerush that signifies the start of another blastin' subi tune? nowhere else, that's where. when i compared m211's fascination with subi to john peel's fascination with the fall, subi got a bit upset... but do...

words really don't do this one much justice. it's borderline insane, it's somewhere between the drill, the bass, the ambient, and the headfunk.. it's got those trademark weird-as-hell arpeggios in there, and it's just brilliance. then again, i'm sure we're biased? nonetheless, ridiculously good. hopefully if you're reading this you have it already. if not, go get it, for gawd's sake. heh, over and out.. oh, it's neglected because we didn't release it for a year or more, btw. more fool us :)

This one has been waiting in the wings for a very long time - apologies to Prob and Ebb for delaying it. But finally a release for the superlative "Stylez EP" by one of mono211's foremost Finns and his studio partner, Ebb. There's actually very little that can be said about this apart from the fact that damn, it's a classy hiphopjam, and the bonustrack is original and smartstyled too. Oh, please note that real scratching and real sativa extract was used in the making of this track,...

Thank you for the music, said Abba. We say similar to Bay Tremore for this eminently bouncy track that assaults your eardrums at somewhere between hiphop, d+b, bigbeat, and heaven only knows what else. Sorta like Fatboy Slim if he came from Finland and listened to more Hardfloor than surf tunes. Now that www.mono211.com is up and everything is hunky dory, we're getting back on track again - musical whizkids, eh, Tzant? :)

first release of 1999, and first release in almost a month from us, too. we've been caught up in the webpage being down and the xmas festivities and the kicking and the biting. still, everything back to 'normal' now, with some fine new ramone ascii and this wicked new linus ep. it's been a long time, but it's been worth the wait.. the blunted boy wonder comes up with some truly organic beats... the clock on the wall silently ticks.. and we hit the repeat button. again. chill out.
